Transformer of the Day for February 16, 2009


-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Communications
-Motto: “When the Music is Rockin’, I’m Rollin’”

-Notable Toy: Hasbro Deluxe (Hasbro, 1985)

Notes: Blaster is the quintessential example of how the same character can get very different characterizations. On film, Blaster is a simple communications officer with a penchance for rhymes. In the Marvel Universe, however, he is a hardened soldier who is seen as a capable leader by his colleagues. Even if the eject button did not always function, there’s no better toy than the original.

(For more information on Blaster, check out the Generation One Transformer Bible.)
